Keeping kosher in Freiburg
Unfortunately there are no kosher supermarkets, cafés or restaurants in Freiburg as the local Jewish community is not big enough to maintain such an infrastructure. Nevertheless there are different ways to keep kashrut also in Freiburg.
If you know German you can consult the Kosher List of products sold in the supermarkets and matching the requirements of the Halacha. The list was assembled by the German Orthodox Rabbis Conference but is unfortunately not being updated since 2010.
Since autumn 2011 the Jewish community of Freiburg arranged production of kosher bread with the local bakery Lienhart. With its 6 branches it is thus possible to provide kosher bread in several parts of the town. As only a part of the pastries in the bakery is kosher please consult the list of kosher bread sorts on our web site.
Furthermore you can buy kosher products such as beef, chicken meat, wine, ready made meals and more from our community supplier. For more details, prices, ordering and purchasing please contact blackforest-4u.com.
